What is a .BFS file?

A .BFS file is a special kind of computer file that is used by video games in the FlatOut series, which are games about racing and performing stunts with cars. These files are important because they hold different pieces of information that the game needs to work properly. For example, they can contain the designs of the cars you can drive in the game, or the layouts of the race tracks you compete on.

People who enjoy customizing or changing their games, a process often called "modding," might work with .BFS files. By modifying these files, players can alter various aspects of the game, like how a car looks or how a race track is set up, to make the game more interesting or challenging.

To open or change a .BFS file, you would need specific programs. Some of these programs include Bugbear Entertainment FlatOut, which is the official game that uses these files, and other tools like BFS2Unpacker and bfsunpack. These tools help you "unpack" or open up the .BFS files so you can see and change the data inside them.

The FlatOut game series, known for using .BFS files, includes several titles such as the original FlatOut, FlatOut 2, and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage. Each of these games has its own set of .BFS files containing the game data necessary for that particular game.
